One Thousand Dollars reward.

--My woman, Sarah, with two children, left my premises on Monday evening, the 2d instant, about 6 o'clock, and is doubtless either in Richmond or making her way to the enemy's lines. I will give a reward of one Thousand Dollars for their delivery to me, or to any jail in the city, so that I get them.

Sarah is a mulatto woman; medium size; about twenty-six years old; good teeth; long bushy hair; answers promptly when spoken to; is usually cheerful and polite; nicely dressed, and is an unusually good-looking woman. Her oldest child is a sprightly boy, named Smith, about three and a half years old; the other, a very bushy-hair girl, one and a half year old. A boy named Stephen, hired last year at the Ballard House, left my premises with her. She claims that he is her step-son.
